Discoverer through CheckPoint

Does anyone know how to enable Oracle Discoverer Viewer (their web app) through the firewall?  We are trying to allow our VPN users access to it, but it continues to timeout at the query level.  I do not get any dropped or rejected packets - just simple timeouts.

We are NAT'ing the Oracle server object at the firewall (VPN is only in testing phase, and we have other apps that need to be accessed via the Internet).  I've tried an ANY ACCEPT rule to the server, but still get the timeout.  Curiously, when I change the access from ClientEncrypt to accept, I do not even get to the query part of the application.

Any help is greatly appreciated.  


RE: Discoverer through CheckPoint

I would guess that Discover is trying to use a port that your firewall is blocking, I presume your vpn users can access other web pages on your Intranet?

First thing is to find out which port(s) Discoverer depends on, then you can make sure they're enabled on your firewall.

I'm guessing here - so I hope I'm not wildly off the mark.
